Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

one more time...

ok…so it’s 8months or so later…i’m a lil bit heavier…who cares…what i’m doin right now (and not too badly) is just eating a normal amount of healthy food on everyday of the wk except friday which is my guilt-free day and that doesnt mean i totally pig out…once i say 2 myself on a friday just eat it cuz u can i no longer feel like eating it so much…so i dont. Anyway guilt-free fridays r working for me, even tho it’s only been 8 days into this thing so far, but considering i’ve had 2 go 2 two buffet dinners i think it’s been quite good. I’m quite proud of myself if i do say so myself! just have to keep it up now, 1 down, only 19 to go!!!

I am so sick...

of being fat! 7 yrs ago a 13yr old me looked in the mirror as a uk size 12 and decided to lose a little weight. 7 yrs later i look in the mirror at a uk size 16 gallumphing pig! or something of the kind. 3 stone heavier than when i started out. Anyway i want to lose weight and just keep losing weight and just see how thin i can get and finally fit into all those size 12 clothes that have been waiting for me at the back of my wardrobe for 7 long years. and then lose some more weight so those size 12 clothes are comfortable on me. and that’s it. that’s ALL i want! that’s ALL i’ve wanted for the last 7 yrs. is it too much to ask for?? is it sooo impossible that even after 7 yrs i’m still not there? every january i’m at a higher weight that the previous one. should i just give up already??? i think this’ll be my last try. i’ll give it one last go. and then i will give up. i just have 2 remember that it’s hard, but it’s not impossible. Now is the first hour of the rest of my life.
